  1. Gloin scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The smell is appealing and unusual, but not too unusual to stop smelling of whisky. The exotic invites you to explore. In the mouth, the fruits are sweeter, I like the body very much. The finish disappoints something because the complexity and intensity are lacking. Overall, a very unique and interesting whisky. He would not be worth a purchase, though.

    blind tasting
    • Nose
      It starts with an exotic fruit that I find hard to pin down, maybe papaya? Some mandarin, almond, slightly grassy, some sawdust and a hint of lemongrass. Over time, the exotic fruits come back and make room for vanilla and the smell of raw lemon cake dough.
    • Taste
      Medium on, very soft, pleasantly creamy body, then a short pungency on the tongue, vanilla, yellow pepper, tangerine, sweetened lemon, pancakes
    • Finish
      Very delicate bitterness, malt, wood, at best medium long

    Have little experience with Amis, but I like it well. If something "thin" ... the question is now: lies at an upper age or at the low alcohol level. Or both? I estimate 40-43% vol. Notes from a blind tasting
    • Nose
      In the nose it starts with yellow fruits. In addition beautiful ethereal oils / mint / menthol. Then it will be vanilla and honey sweet. With covered glass I have a bourbon-typical Kleisternote briefly. With a lot of time, the nose is more towards yellow fruits and creme brulee. So I lean out the window and say: this is an Ami.
    • Taste
      Slow start, all pretty elegant, mild and creamy. Slight tickling of alcohol behind on the sides of the tongue.
    • Finish
      Rather short.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    he is very tasty. But I'm pretty sure that's not a Scot. OK, he has a Scottish tendency, but he also has a non-Scottish, sauerkraut and wet, fresh wood. But he can keep up with the quality of the Scots.
    • Nose
      light fruit, slightly dusty and a sour acid note, oak, rather fresh, wet wood, vanilla, sweetness.
    • Taste
      light fruit, quite tart oak notes, again fresh wood, a sour green fruitiness.
    • Finish
      rather short, oak, slightly salty, minimal grainy.
